Highly recommended. Go ask you local wine merchant for Dolcetto from Piemonte, north Italy. While on the wine subject i will also recommend asking for any white wines from Gavi here in Piemonte, very refreshing on hot sunny days.
I quite like a nice barolo myself, but i'm willing to try anything new

Hello Steve,

I don't suppose you know of anyone in Italy who has a good passenger side door for a Fiat X1/9,do you?

Are there any real drawbacks to moving to Italy.....your life sounds pretty good to me!.Is it easy to get residency?If so,I'm on my way!

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Just a quick update.

Brake hoses changed and bled all in under 60 mins.

My advice to anyone who feels competent enough to do this is do yourself a favour and buy a proper brake union spanner, it will save you a lot of grief. Also to stop the brake fluid leaking out whilst open system, before you start turn engine off, pump brake pedal a few times and then jam brake pedal down only a few inches with block of wood, I use an adjustable hiking stick. This will close brake fluid reservoir system and hardly any oil will drain out of pipe whilst disconnected. Also you should do yourself a favour whilst bleeding the system and bleed all the system to change the oil at all four corners, I believe that this is one of the most under estimated maintenance features that should be carried out fairly regularly but never is, even by main garages. Whenever I buy a second hand car i always change the brake fluid.

This work is not too difficult but please only attempt it if you are competent and sure you know what you are doing, remember that along with tyres your life ( and others )will depend on the standand of the job.

Safe motoring out there.
